Thin wall precision tubes
Stainless steel thin wall precision tubes available in seamless or welded redrawn cold-worked condition.
The Sandvik program of thin wall precision tubes covers a wide range of materials, such as:
- Austenitic stainless steels
- Duplex stainless steels
- Nickel alloys
Sandvik thin wall precision tubes are typically used for the following industries:
- Nuclear power generation
Thin wall precision tubes are available in the following size range (other sizes can be offered on request):
|Outside diameter||0.5-50.8 mm (0.0197-2 in.)|
|Wall thickness||0.10-3.00 mm (0.0039-0.118 in.)|
Tubes are delivered with the following tolerances (though tighter tolerances can be offered on request):
|Outside diameter||+/-0.75% with a minimum of +/-0.02 mm (0.00079 in.)|
|Wall thickness||+/- 10%|
Annealed or hard condition depending on the size and application.
Highly polished or bright annealed surface. A pickled surface can be delivered on request.
Surface roughness ≤ 0.4 μm on both the outside and inside surfaces is guaranteed.
Tubes can be cut to length or delivered in straight lengths up to 9 meters maximum.
We can provide the following types of testing for thin wall precision tubes:
- Corrosion test
- Flaring test
- Flattening test
- Hardness test
- Mechanical and chemical tests
- Microstructure test
- Eddy Current and ultrasonic tests (on request)
Sandvik can provide a range of additional services for its thin wall precision tubes. Examples are cutting, drilling, flaring, flattening and machining.
